Travel Alert Issued For Bismarck and Central North Dakota
The North Dakota Department of Transportation has issued a Travel Alert for Central North Dakota, including the Bismarck - Mandan area.
From the NDDOT
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have issued a Travel Alert for central North Dakota due to scattered icy conditions and snow fog creating reduced visibility when meeting and passing vehicles. Cities and surrounding areas included in the Travel Alert are Center, Glen Ullin, Flasher, Kenmare, Minot, and Garrison. This also includes areas west of Bismarck. A Travel Alert means conditions are such that motorists can still travel in these areas, but should be advised of rapidly changing condition as a band of snow moves east through the area. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and drive according to the conditions.
Please take extra time to get anywhere, and check up on road conditions before hitting the road.
